ECHOOHCE:

Want to e-Mail a 'NY Times' Columnist? Better Subscribe to TimesSelect (Joe Strupp, January 17, 2006, Editor & Publisher)

If you haven't signed up for TimesSelect, The New York Times' online subscription product, don't bother e-mailing the paper's star columnists.

Since the Times put the words of its eight Op-Ed columnists behind a paid wall last September, it has also decided that only TimesSelect subscribers should be allowed to e-mail Paul Krugman, Maureen Dowd, David Brooks, et al.


As the Left collapses ever inwards on itself it peers out in bewilderment and wonders why America is become incomprehensible.

This may limit Maureen's chance of ever finding a man to nothing but Sid Blumenthal look-alikes.

Is it possible the Times did this because they just don't want to submit these jokers to public scrutiny?

"This will free up our columnists, giving them more time to write those 'Bush Lives in a Bubble' stories we all love so much,," explained Sulzburger, adding "But I'm a little worried about Krugman-san; he hasn't stepped foot out of his office in six months."
